[0005] 由于结构用实心材料而不是泡沫制成,所以,通过结构的弯曲而不是压缩来提供缓冲。 [0005] Since the structure with a solid material rather than a foam made, so to provide a buffer structure by bending rather than compression. 因此,护膝随着时间推移显现出比已知泡沫护膝改进的压缩回弹性。 Therefore, the knee showing improvement over time than the known foam knee compression elasticity. 此外,通道允许空气靠近膝盖循环,因此该护膝比已知泡沫护膝更具呼吸功能,这可提高使用者的舒适性。 Further, the channels allow circulation of air close to the knee, the knee and therefore more foam than known knee respiratory function, which can improve the comfort of the user.

[0006] 第一通道较佳地布置成有序形式。 [0006] The first channel is preferably arranged in an ordered form. 换句话说,这种形式不是随机的。 In other words, this form is not random. 较佳地,第一通道成排地布置。 Preferably, the first passage disposed in rows. 所有第一通道最好具有相同的横截面积。 Preferably all of the first channels have the same cross-sectional area.

[0007] 该结构还可形成尺寸不同于第一通道的第二通道。 [0007] The structure may also be formed a second channel different from the first dimension of the passage. 第二通道较佳地布置成有序形式。 The second channel is preferably arranged in an ordered form. 换句话说,这种形式不是随机的。 In other words, this form is not random. 较佳地,第二通道成排地布置。 Preferably, the second channel arranged in rows. 第二通道较佳地以与第一通道交替的方式进行布置。 The second channel is preferably in alternating manner with the first channel arrangement. 最好第二通道具有均匀的横截面积。 Preferably, the second channel has a uniform cross-sectional area.

[0008] 较佳地,第一和第二通道一起布置成有序形式。 [0008] Preferably, the first and second channels are arranged together into an ordered form. 换句话说,这种形式不是随机的。 In other words, this form is not random.

[0009] 较佳地,每个第一通道具有IOmm2和20mm2之间的横截面积。 [0009] Preferably, each channel having a cross sectional area between the first and IOmm2 20mm2.

[0010] 较佳地,每个第二通道具有120mm2和140mm2之间的横截面积。 [0010] Preferably, each of the second passages having a cross sectional area between 120mm2 and 140mm2.

[0011] 第一通道的横截面可以是任何形状,但最好是圆形横截面。 Cross section [0011] The first channel may be any shape, but are preferably circular cross section. 第一通道彼此可直接连接,或可通过肋进行连接,肋和第一通道的外边缘形成第二通道。 The first passage may be directly connected to each other, or may form a second channel connected to an outer edge of the ribs and the first passage by a rib. 因此,该结构包括倾向于弯曲的元件(肋)和倾向于提供刚性的元件(第一通道的壁)。 Thus, the structure comprises a curved inclined element (rib) and tend to provide a rigid element (wall of the first channel).

[0012] 较佳地,肋和管状件的壁具有相同的厚度。 [0012] Preferably, the ribs and the wall of the tubular member have the same thickness.

[0013] 较佳地,每个第一通道的横截面积比每个第二通道的横截面积小25%,较佳地小20%,最佳地小16%。 [0013] Preferably, each of the cross-sectional area smaller than the first cross-sectional area of ​​each channel of the second channel 25%, preferably 20% smaller, most preferably 16% smaller.

具体实施方式 detailed description

[0047] 参照图1至5,第一实施例的护膝10包括用硬度为42肖氏A的注塑模制的热塑性弹性体制成的结构12,该结构12包括一系列圆形管状件14,它们布置成其纵向轴线互相平行。 [0047] Referring to FIGS. 1-5, 10 comprises a hardness of Shore A 42 injection molded thermoplastic elastomer knee structure 12 according to the first embodiment, the structure 12 comprises a series of circular tubular member 14, which arranged with their longitudinal axes parallel to each other. 管状件14成排地布置成有序形式。 The tubular member 14 arranged in a row and orderly form. 管状件14形成第一通道16,该通道16截面为圆形。 The tubular member 14 is formed a first channel 16, the channel 16 of circular cross-section. 每个圆形截面的内直径为5mm。 The inner diameter of each circular cross-section of 5mm. 每个管状件14通过肋18、19连接到其它管状件14。 Each tubular member 14 is connected to the other tubular member 14 by the ribs 18 and 19. 每个管状件14(护膝边缘处的管状件除外)通常具有从其延伸出的四个肋18。 Each tubular member 14 (except at the edge of the tubular member knee) typically has four ribs 18 extending therefrom. 诸肋18和管状件14的壁均为2mm厚。 The ribs 18 and the wall of the tubular member 14 are 2mm thick. 诸肋18成对角线系列横贯护膝行进。 The ribs 18 traverse diagonally series knee travel. 诸肋18和管状件14的外边缘一起形成第二通道20。 The ribs 18 and the outer edge 14 of the tubular member 20 together form a second passage. 第二通道20通常呈菱形,其四个角被管状件14截头。 The second passage 20 is generally diamond-shaped, the four corners of the tubular member 14 which is truncated. 第二通道成排地布置成有序形式,并与第一通道成交替的形式。 The second passage is arranged in rows to form an ordered and alternating with the first passage to form. 当从上方观看时,如图5所示,该结构包括敞开区域(通道16、20)和封闭区域(管14和肋18)。 When viewed from above, as shown in Figure 5, the structure includes open areas (channels 16, 20) and a closed region (pipe 14 and the rib 18). 封闭面积占总面积的比例近似为22%。 Closing ratio of the total area is approximately 22%.

[0048] 管状件14之间的间距以及肋18的长度在横跨侧边24之间的大部分护膝是均匀的。 [0048] The spacing between the ribs 14 and the length of the tubular member 18 across most of the knee brace 24 between the side edges is uniform. 每个肋18为IOmm长。 Each rib 18 is IOmm long. 沿着侧边24的最外肋19远比任何其它的肋长,如图5所示,因此,形成第三通道25,它们的形状类似于第二通道,但横截面积较大。 Along the outermost side edges 24 of the ribs 19 longer than any other ribs, shown in Figure 5, therefore, the third passage 25 is formed, and their shapes are similar to the second channel, but a large surface area.

[0049] 护膝10具有与使用者膝盖接触的上表面22。 [0049] The knee brace 10 has an upper surface 22 in contact with the user's knee. 上表面22外形是凹入的。 The upper surface 22 is concave profile. 底表面26是使用时最靠近所跪地面的护膝的表面,该底表面26在中心处具有平的外形28,但在护膝10的侧边24处朝向上表面22向上成弧形。 The bottom surface 26 is closest to the ground surface using the knee when kneeling, the bottom surface 26 has a flat outer shape 28 at the center, but at the side of the knee brace 10 toward the upper surface 24 of an arc 22 upwards. 因此,护膝在中心28处比侧边处薄。 Thus, knee 28 at the center is thinner than the side edges. 护膝带有第三通道的部分对于重量承载来说不重要,但对于配合来说是重要的。 Knee with a third passage portion for weight bearing is important, but it is important for fit. 因此,在这些区域内的结构刚度不重要。 Therefore, structural rigidity in these regions is not important.

[0050] 护膝10旨在用于特殊的定向,边缘30面向大腿,而边缘32面向小腿。 [0050] The knee brace 10 is intended for the particular orientation, the edge facing the leg 30, while the edge 32 facing the leg. 边缘32具有中心弯曲的锥形部分34,因而边缘32的中心部分直到护膝10厚度的一半高度。 A curved edge 32 having a central tapered portion 34, and thus the central portion 32 of the edge 10 until half the height of the thickness of the knee brace. 该部分34通过对佩戴者膝盖底部/佩戴者的胫骨提供缓和的外形而抵靠着它,以提高佩戴者的舒适性。 The bottom portion 34 through the wearer's knees / wearer's tibia and provide gentle profile against it, to enhance the comfort of the wearer.

[0051] 如图5所示,两个附加系列的肋36、38分别靠近和平行于护膝的边缘30、32行进。 As shown in [0051] FIG. 5, two additional series of ribs 36, 38 close to and parallel to the edges 30, 32 of traveling knee. 肋36系列横贯护膝的整个宽度延伸,而肋38系列不到护膝10的侧边24就停止,并仅对部分34的宽度延伸。 Series of ribs 36 traverse the entire width of knee extension, and the series of ribs 38 is less than the side 24 of the knee brace 10 is stopped, and only the width of the portion 34 extends.

[0052] 图6至9示出根据本发明第二实施例的护膝。 [0052] Figures 6 to 9 illustrate a second embodiment of a knee brace according to the present invention. 该第二实施例类似于第一实施例,于是,类似部件用相同的附图标记但加前缀“I”来表示,且将仅描述差异之处。 The second embodiment is similar to the first embodiment, therefore, like components but the prefix "I" are denoted by the same reference numerals, and the differences only will be described.

[0053] 护膝110包括薄片构件150,在该实施例中薄片构件用硬度为70肖氏A的热塑性弹性体制成。 [0053] The sheet member 150 includes a knee 110, this embodiment is a sheet member with a hardness of 70 Shore A in a thermoplastic elastomer. 结构112和薄片构件150注塑模制而成。 Structure 112 and the sheet member 150 injection-molded. 当图8中从上方观看时,薄片构件150的面积约为整个护膝面积的35%。 When viewed from above in FIG. 8, the area of ​​the sheet member 150 is about 35% of the entire area of ​​the knee. 如图8所示,薄片构件150中心地设置在护膝110内。 8, the sheet member 150 is disposed centrally within the knee brace 110. 如图9和10所示,薄片构件150外形凸出,薄片构件150的弧顶面向上表面122。 9 and 10, the sheet member 150 protruding shape, the sheet member 150 facing the top of the arc of surface 122. 弧的径向中心形成前后延伸的轴线,并仅延伸在有最大载荷的护膝中心部分上。 Arc extending radially formed at the center longitudinal axis and extending only over the central portion of the knee brace maximum load. 薄片构件的外围边缘包括两个侧边缘152和两个端边缘154。 The peripheral edge of the sheet member 152 comprises two side edges and two end edges 154. 侧边缘152平行于护膝110的侧边124,而端边缘154平行于护膝110的端部130、132。 152 parallel to the side edges 110 of the side knee 124, and the end portion 154 is parallel to the end edges 130, 132 110 knee brace. 端边缘154为凸出的,而侧边缘152布置成在使用中平行于所跪的地面。 End edge 154 is convex, while the lateral edge 152 is arranged parallel to the kneeling on the ground, in use. 薄片构件在边缘处厚度为1mm。 The thickness of the sheet member at the edge of 1mm. 薄片构件在其中心处厚度为3mm ο The thickness of the sheet member at the center thereof is 3mm ο

[0054] 在使用中,通过阻止肋118和管状件114屈曲,薄片构件150通过连接肋118和管状件114对结构提供额外的刚度,薄片构件150的凹陷形状使得它起到片簧的作用,因此在结构112内提供进一步的弹性和悬置。 [0054] In use, the ribs by preventing buckling and the tubular member 114, the sheet member 150 on the structure 114 to provide additional rigidity by the connection rib 118 and the tubular member, the recessed shape of the sheet member 150 is such that it acts as a leaf spring 118, thus providing for further flexibility and suspended within the structure 112. 如图10所示,薄片构件150形成孔156,孔156布置成有序形式,以与管状件114内的通道116对齐。 As shown, the sheet member 150 are formed holes 156, holes 156 form an ordered arrangement 10 to the inner tubular member 116 and passage 114 are aligned. 因此,空气仍可从膝盖循环到护膝10的外面,由此保持护膝10的呼吸能力。 Thus, the air circulation from the knee still knee brace 10 to the outside, thereby maintaining the ability to breathe knee brace 10.

[0055] 在使用中,如图11至13中所示,护膝放置在固定器40内。 [0055] In use, 11 to 13, the knee is placed in the holder 40. 图12和13中的固定器所示的护膝210,尽管其具有薄片构件,但护膝210与第二实施例的护膝110有些不同。 Knee pads 12 and 13 shown in the fixture 210, although having a sheet member, the knee knee 110 and 210 of the second embodiment is somewhat different. 这些不同之处可在图12、13和14中看见。 These differences can be seen in FIGS. 12, 13 and 14. 与第二实施例的护膝110类似的部件将用相同的附图标记表示,但用前缀“2”代替“I”。 Knee 110 of the second embodiment like components will be denoted by the same reference numerals, but with the prefix "2" instead of "I". 与第二实施例的护膝110不同之处将在下面讨论。 And a second knee 110 differs from the embodiment will be discussed below. 固定器40包括底部42和三侧边44、46、48。 Holder 40 includes a base 42 and three side edges 44, 46. 底部42的第四边缘50敞开。 The fourth edge of the bottom 42 of the 50 open. 护膝210放置成使底部表面26与固定器40的底部42接触。 Knee 210 is placed such that the bottom surface 26 of bottom portion 42 and the fixed contact 40. 固定器40的底部42以类似于护膝10的底部表面26的方式成形,这样,在护膝210和固定器40之间有大的接触面积。 The bottom 42 of the holder 40 in a manner similar to the knee bottom surface 10 of the molding 26, so that a large contact area between the knee 210 and the holder 40. 固定器40还包括带子52、54,在使用中带子可用来围绕人腿使固定器保持就位。 40 further comprises a strap retainer 52, in use, the strap may be used to make human leg around the fixture in place. 敞开的边缘50布置成在使用中使固定器的边缘面向佩戴者的小腿,这样,不存在佩戴者的腿压靠的边缘,因此,提高了舒适度。 Open edge 50 is arranged at the edge of the fixture using the manipulation facing legs of the wearer so that the wearer's legs pressing against the edges do not exist, and therefore, improving fit.

[0056] 护膝210底部的外表面具有锥形部分234,但不是如第二实施例那样位于边缘232处。 The outer surface of the bottom 210 of the knee [0056] has a tapered portion 234, but not as in the second embodiment 232 located at the edge. 相反,锥形部分234靠近边缘230,而且锥形部分从上表面222向上变细以沿着边缘230形成较厚的部分260。 In contrast, the tapered portion 234 near the edge 230, and a tapered portion 222 upwardly from the upper surface 230 tapering to thicker portions 260 formed along an edge. 在使用中,佩戴者的膝盖顶部与护膝210的该较厚部分260接触,而不是与固定器40的边缘46接触,因此,提高了舒适度,在使用过程中阻止在护膝边缘上方移动。 In use, the wearer's knee thicker knee 210 and the top of the contact portion 260, instead of the fixed contact 40 and edge 46, thus, improving fit, prevented from moving over the edge of the knee brace during use. 护膝210具有两个附加系列的肋236、238。 Knee 210 has two additional series of ribs 236, 238. 系列236比前述护膝10、110中更靠近边缘230,而系列238实际上是沿着边缘232。 230 Series 236 closer to the edge than the knee 10, 110, and 238 is actually a series of 232 along the edge. 当佩戴者跪在护膝210上时,系列236、238紧靠边缘230、232,增加了护膝210的稳定性。 When the wearer kneeling on the knee pads 210, series 236, 238, 230, 232, close to the edge, increase the stability of the knee 210. 当如图13所示地从上方观看时,薄片构件250具有约为整个护膝210面积的60%的面积,因此,其比第二实施例的护膝110的薄片构件150面积大。 When viewed from above as shown in FIG. 13, the sheet member 250 having an area of ​​about 60% of the entire knee area 210, so that the second embodiment of the knee than the sheet member 110 of large area 150.
